Citrix Load Testing

CitraTest VU

Tevron’s CitraTest VU is a highly recommended solution for Citrix load testing. When the Citrix software is deployed by a company, it needs to undertake load testing to simulate how many users the Citrix server farm can support before they go live. CitraTest VU is used for this requirement, which is called Citrix load testing. CitraTest VU has a simple functionality that helps administrators identify performance bottlenecks before applications are delivered to the production environment. CitraTest VU is an ideal load modeling solution for Citrix load testing.

CitraTest VU:

  • Using automated scripts to copy real user activity in the actual client GUI, it generates 100% realistic load modeling scenarios with varying number of "virtual users"
  • Measures end to end application response metrics from the real users point of view under different levels of virtual user activity
  • Monitors and records server performance metrics

How does it work?

CitraTest VU enables IT professionals to create and execute real user replication against the production server environment. "Load generating machines" are used to generate the multiple user load against server environment under test while actively measuring response time and gathering system metrics. No software is installed in the production environment.

CitraTest VU uses a superior "image recognition" approach to replicate transactions from the real user’s perspective. It also measures and reports end to end response times at the client GUI during playback by comparing the screen to "baseline response" images that are created during test script development. This makes it an ideal solution for automating real user activity within any server-based computing client interface. CitraTest VU can intelligently and consistently generate virtual user activity in the Citrix client interfaces with this superior "image recognition" approach. It is the only test automation solution for Citrix services that replicates real user activity using the actual client connection GUI without installing any software in the production environment, just like a real user.
